My best friend got into an argument with his girlfriend and he begged me to let him move into my spare bedroom.
I wasn’t very interested in having a roommate, but I certainly couldn’t tell my friend no when he was looking at me with those sad eyes.
I let the guy move into the bedroom a couple of weeks ago and now he has moved in completely. He gave me a couple of hundred dollars to help with rent, so I don’t have a lot of complaints about the bills. The one thing that I would like to complain about is the fact that this guy can’t leave the temperature alone. I prefer to keep the thermostat set at 72 degrees. I find this to be a very comfortable temperature and it is never too warm or too cool. My best friend does not think that 72° is a comfortable temperature and the guy is constantly adjusting the thermostat. Last Saturday we got into a huge argument because I woke up and the thermostat was set at 67 degrees. I told my friend that the air conditioner can’t handle those low temperatures. I tried to explain that the AC unit can freeze up and stop working, but I think he thought I was joking. I can promise that if he breaks the AC unit, he is going to pay for 100% of the repair bill. I have tried to be nice, but I’m not going to deal with huge bills and disrespect from my friend. The guy should be thankful he has a place to rest his tired head.
